Abstract

This paper discusses the impact of fill factor on the input current ripple of the photovoltaic module and the loss effect on power extracted. Photovoltaic module's P-V curve produces exponential curve. The curvature of this curve indicates the fill factor of the particular cell; hence, by increasing the fill factor, the available extracted power increases. Yet, this paper states that losses due to photovoltaic current increases by increasing the fill factor.
